Varla Stones are white, glowing, magical stones that, when used, recharge all the magical items in the Hero's inventory. Varla Stones (like Welkynd Stones) are single-use items.

Varla Stones are mostly found in Ayleid Ruins, and may be hidden. Sometimes they are inside Varla Stone Cages that have a switch located somewhere in the ruin, which will raise the cage. The switches are often on sides of columns or under water.

Other locationsEdit



  • There are only fifty-nine Varla stones in the game (counting the one on display in Castle Chorrol and the three hidden in Battlehorn Castle).
  • Like Welkynd Stones, Varla Stones do not respawn.
  • As there is no limit to the number of magical items that can be recharged by a single Varla Stone, recharge as many items at a time as possible.
  • One may be able to use the duplication glitch to get more.
  • Varla Stone cages have small spaces in them where the stone can be taken without activating the switch/lever to raise the cage. Near the top of the cage.
  • Varla Stones are recorded to have been used by Aldmer High Lord Torinaan during the Merethic Era to harness the power of the stars, which he then used to destroy many of the creatures threatening his people.[1]
